True Christians Walk Like Jesus

but whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected. By this we may know that we are in him: whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked.
(1Jn 2:5-6 ESV)

Christians are “little christs”. We are created anew in Christ, and we bear the image of the living God. If we are truly in Christ, we will walk in the same way that He walked. None of us can show the entire image of Christ. The entire Body of believers comes together to show the full image of Christ to the world. Our hearts should be set on being like Jesus. If we aren’t growing more and more like Jesus, how can we claim to belong to Him? Chris Sligh, in his song, sings, “…empty me of me so i can be filled with you”. We desperately need God to empty us of ourselves, so that we can be filled with Him.
